Newbie on Day 2

Hi I am new to all of this but Day 2 and i have been fine except for one thing. I seem to have quite a high temperaature but feel good apart from this - is this a common symptom or just a co-incidence ?

    Dave - there is nothing bad coming your way. It appears that some people have stronger carb withdrawals than others and many have none at all. This tends to be day 3 and I did have slight symptoms on Day 3. Mild headache and a little light headed but a few paracetamol and i was fine after an hour or two. After that it was a walk in th epark and I am delighted that I have just returned from my first weigh in and lost 10lb in my first week so stick in there please

    Well done Charlie! I too found day 3 very difficult... Day 12 now and feeling fantastic! Make sure to post back when you've had your first weigh in!

    Thank you for the reply. I am on Day 4 now and feeling great so must have been a one off and it passed. Day 3 seemed the most challenging with a minor headache and light headedness so must have been carb withdrawal but glad its all good today. Onwards and upwards !!!

    I don't think it is a symptom. Can't really think of anything. You don't have any genetic disorders of the muscle and no-one in your family has had major problems with general anaesthetic? No? Good! It'll probably be a cold or something like that unfortunately. Hope it goes away soon and keep hydrated!

    Started Lighter Life 10/1/12. Although there were ups and downs, I stayed the course and pushed through into...

    Management Phase 1 12/6/12 after 5 months of LLT. Having a great time and enjoying the fruits of all the hard work.

    Charlie - I didn't have a temperature - the opposite in fact, by the middle of week one (I'm on day 11) I was feeling the cold a lot. It could be that your body is just adjusting to the diet and everyone's different. Also, are you hydrating enough? Take plenty of small amounts of fluid - including black leaf tea and/or black coffee - I found the water flavourings a god send for this.
